ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some Albany women who work to make sure African American culture remains in the community made a donation to an Albany school Friday.

Members of Links, Incorporated presented a $500 check to Principal Geraldine Hudley at Radium Springs Middle Magnet School of the Arts. It will be used to buy items students can earn in the Patch-a-paws program, which rewards students for being respectful and obedient.

Dr. JoAnn Taylor said, "It's the most wonderful feeling because this is our future and part of what Links does is to see to it that our children are being engrained in the necessary skills that it takes to become good productive citizens in our community."

Principal Geraldine Hudley said, "This team of young ladies have just committed themselves and their resources to the children here and we are so grateful for it." Every month, members of the Links program participate in at least one program at the school.
